"I enjoy the personal and emotional interactions with patients and families. Because the majority of patients with lung problems require in-depth care, I often assume the role of primary care physician. Usually medical interventions in the ICU provide quick, dramatic turnaround in patients' medical condition. It is very gratifying to me to see these interventions rapidly impact patients' health."
